Fold the overhang inward onto the side of the shell for 30 minutes. Spread the chocolate. Melted on the bottom of the shell and chill the shell for 15 minutes. In a heavy saucepan combine the brown sugar and the syrup, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring, and simmer it for 5 minutes. Let the mixture cool until it is no longer bubbling, add the butter, and stir the mixture until the butter is melted. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, the vanilla, and a pinch of salt and add the syrup mixture in a slow stream, whisking. Add the pecans to the shell, pour in the egg mixture, and if necessary tap down the pecans to coat them with the egg mixture. Bake the tart for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the crust is pale golden, let cool, and serve it warm with ice cream.;
